    It's so far forward it's not even on the club, so you can't see it...lol! First driver ever that produces "negative" spin...lol :D

    If Ping goes internal with the low spin weight, they will gain an edge against competitors.

    It could be the triangular shape that holds the G410 logo.
    Like the M6 inertia pad.

    Going to be a winner for sure but I’ll stick with the 410 plus. Prefer the forgiveness and just getting the spin down with shaft. Best of both worlds!

    Agree with this. I find the 410 to be of lower flight at 9 with a HZRDUS Smoke 6.5 TX than my 400 LST at 8.5 with Diamana BF TX. I have actually lofted up to 10 in the flat setting and weight in fade position and am hitting high launch low spin tight draws.

    The forward weight is on the very rear of the club.

    How is this different from the regular 410? weight is still on the back. Shouldnt the LST have a weight closer to the face?

    People are already asking for a Max? This is 450cc. You really think they'll add another model with just 10cc more?

    That still sounds like too much spin for the average Golf WRX player.

    The Average WRX player seems to like knuckleballs. Mis-hit purgatory.

    If they can't improve the MOI / forgiveness of the G400 Max at this point, I wish they would at least release a 11.5 or 12 degree version of the existing model.

    The weight located towards the front of the face. Look where the forged face printing is. That’s the weight.

    That’s not a weight - just glare from a window behind the person taking the picture. Other than color, looks the same as the regular 410.

    Going to be tough to beat the 400 LST which, for me, was a great mid launch low spin head. The 410 plus seems to be closer to the LST in terms of spin, but lower launch. I would imagine the 410 LST will be closer to the M5 and Cally Sub Zero than the 400 LST was, which was more mid/low spin and launch than the low spin option from competitors. As a lower spin, positive AOA, higher ball speed guy like myself, the 410 Plus fits into a nice window for me, whereas the M5 and Sub Zero are too low spin on high toe stikes, which I prefer.

    Maybe ask if you can use your credit to buy gift cards? I had just over $1500 when I left my club (I moved out of state) and we did three $500 gift cards. This way he was able to close out his year-end books and I was able to wait for the new gear to hit the market before committing to a purchase.

    Looks good and hope it performs to the hype since Ping held the release to make sure it outperformed the g400lst. Also hoping it sounds and feels like the g400lst that was the best sounding driver ping has had to me.

    I'm such an idiot. That will be my strategy this year. Assuming I have any left over after inevitably buying a 410 LST.

    My guess is the head is shorter (front to back) thus moving the weight closer to the face. Either way the 400LST is going to be tough to beat.

    Rear weight could be less as well, just a thought
